Despite several speculations that Shah Rukh Khan's RAEES will be moved ahead (so as to avoid clash with yet another biggie Salman Khan's SULTAN), the makers, especially producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar always insisted that they will not budge. Right from day one they maintained that they will release the film on Eid come what may. However, it seems now the RAEES makers are contemplating to push the release of the film. Reports are doing the rounds that RAEES might be postponed.
||SULTAN AND RAEES
But if you thought that the RAEES makers are set to shift the date in order to have a solo release of their film, then probably that's not the case. As, the latest buzz suggests that either RAEES will clash with Ajay Devgn's SHIVAAY or it will take on either Sajid Nadiadwala's DISHOOM (featuring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez) on July 29 or Ashutosh Gowariker's MOHENJO DARO with Hrithik Roshan in the lead on 12 August 2016.
While one may wonder what really transpired and induced the RAEES makers to have a change of heart overnight considering they were so firm about their decision, we deem Salman Khan's SULTAN teaser is the reason behind it. After Salman Khan's SULTAN teaser released, that received immense response from B-town, the change in Shah Rukh Khan's RAEES release plans started circulating immediately.
Perhaps, after witnessing the terrific teaser of SULTAN that portrays Salman Khan in a never-seen before role and celebrates his machismo, RAEES makers must have given it a second thought. Possibly, they don't want to clash with Salman Khan's SULTAN (after experiencing the fate of DILWALE which was pitted against BAJIRAO MASTANI).
While we haven't received any official confirmation, we are eager to know what the makers are up to and if they are really thinking to postpone RAEES.
